the senate a rocky one. it's no secret senator john kerry, head of the senate foreign relations committee would be interested in the job, though his open senate seat would trigger another special election in massachusetts. with democrats holding a solid majority in the senate, it could be something the white house would be open to explore. >> maybe the president is willing to enter the possibility of losing a senate seat if he wants john kerry badly enough. >> treasury secretary tim geithner has also expressed his desire to return to private life. but with key tax cuts set to expire and sequestration looming his departure is likely to be delayed. >> people like secretary geithner have put a lot of energy in to the issues, related to the fiscal cliff. they are going to want to see it through. >> the same is likely through of defense secretary leon panetta who pleaded with congress to find solution to automatic cuts that could be "de stating" to the pentagon. today, a pentagon spokesman shot down talk of his departure. >> secretary panetta is focused squarely on his job today. focused on th

senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for defense or any other post, there will be an immediate political question for the democrats as to what happens to his u.s. senate seat in massachusetts. senator kerry had mostly been talked about as a potential replacement for secretary of state hillary clinton. the post reporting tonight that that nomination for secretary of state is instead almost certain to go to united nations ambassador susan rice. republicans tried to make into a scandal susan rice's comments after the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. her comments that the attack was thought to be linked to islamist protests rather than an organized terrorist attack. but the administration and the intelligence committee h

neeratt tandon massachusetts senator john kerry, susan rice, national security adviser tom donilon. although there's been talk about the benghazi attacks may have hurt her chances. is kerry the front runner? >> kerry has a lot going for him because he has negotiated around the world. he's been senate foreign relations chair. he obviously spent a lot of time with the president. we shouldn't underestimate how important @ to have a real chemistry with the president. there's a lot of trust to develop. obviously president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton had a great chemistry and really relied on each other. there was a trust built up there. so i think that's the real test is whether the president can really trust john kerry to speak for him and he e spent a lot of time with him recently. so i think he has a good sense of that by now. >> there's been a lot of talk about by the president about bipartisanship. this is one area where people have suggested maybe he'd reach across the aisle and pick a republican. names mentioned included jon huntsman, chuck hagel and colin powell

of the most powerful voices of criticism of president obama when it comes to foreign policy. john kerry, same thing, but no place in politics, no elective office that mitt romney holds. i don't see where he easily fits back into the party. >> he can become a cable tv host. one of those networks out there. what do you think? you think he has -- a lot of the republican party today, he's gone, over, history. it sounded like a valedictory. he was sort of going to recede, did it twice. tried, lost and there were a lot of people who recorded him as a transitional figure even when he was nominee of the party. so i think he'll go back to business, maybe to bayne capital, who knows? i don't see politics in his future. >> what about paul ryan? will he just pick up where he left off? or do you see him broaden out? >> he has time. listen, he has something that is very hard for a house member to get and that is nationwide recognition. he is also a bonafide brainiac with budget things. you may not agree with what he likes to do with the budget, but he understand. so there is still a place for him there. he

unqualifiable or unqualified for the position so they can appoint john kerry which opens up the senate seat to mass, let's deal with that later. the question for the governor. you affirm the intelligence assessments read on the sunday shows were wrong. and i think it's fair and obvious that the intelligence leading up to the attack was wrong and missed the attack. so can you talk about what type of massive or maybe not so massive intelligence failure occurred on the president's watch and what can be done to actually fix that? >> look, what the president has said and what is going on is an investigation. ambassador tom pickering, probably the most senior member conducting that investigation, you to read all of the e-mails, all of the cables, all of the meetings, and you make an assessment of who bears some responsibility in this issue. is it diplomatic security? is intelligence? i think there's another issue here which really concerns me and that at one point the disclosure of some of our libyan assets was made publicly by one of the house committees. i think we have to be very careful about
charges. >> senator john kerry will be nominated to president obama's cabinet but not as secretary of state. president obama may ask the vietnam veteran to replace leon panetta instead it is unlikely he will stay on for the full second term. as for the secretary of state position it is widely believed that the president will nominate susran rice. rice appeared on five different sunday talk show in the aftermath of the terrorist attack and blaming the anti-muslim video saying it was terror. >> republican congressman paul ryan breaking his silence a week after he and mitt romney lost the election wants to get to work. >> the issues we talked about sevenyears ago are what we have today. economy and debt-crisis and i worry about our military. these same problems exist and we have to find common ground to make it work. >> when asked about running on 2016. he said he was tired of presidential pilots right now. >> gas rationing in new jersey came to an end. the was put in place after gas shortages that had cars lined up for miles. governor christy said all supplies are replenished. darkne
's a republican governor. few senators names that get floated for various positions, john kerry for state, jack reid for defense. the situation in their states about, you know, democrats spent a lot of money to get 55 seats i don't know if they want to give up any right away. >> one question, florida, florida, florida, doesn't matter in terms of the presidency. does it matter? there will be a recount? >> well the way the law works, andrea, point one half of 1%, .5, .5 of 1% automatic recount. unless the losing candidate submits in writing to the secretary of state's office that they don't want one. so everybody's waiting to see what the final count is. our guys, shelly, thinks it was up to .51 which would be just above the automatic. so i think everybody's waiting for it. we've got three more counties. our man in florida, three more counties. let's get that in. should have it in in two days and then we'll find out if it's needed. i know the republican governor there is pressuring, there's pressure on boston, if it qualifies for a recount they would like the romney folks not ask for one. >> well
questions that have to do with simple justice. >> talk about nonpolitical. senator john kerry, a democrat, on the -- on the -- chairman of the forerelations committee. he has sent two letters to the state department, requesting congressional access to documents and information leading up to the attack. there is another democratic u.s. senator who says, where is this information and he is trying to get it. >> he will keep expanding until they decide that they're going to be transparent about this. the longer they wait, the more you wonder, where request are they waiting? what is there? what are they worried about? why don't they want to put all the facts out? >> i ready that congressman ru thesburger, a democrat, is starring to ask a lot of questions. >> we have seen this happen before. i hate to mention watergate. but we have seen this before. sometimes the coverup can be worse than the act. although it's pretty hard to get worse than we lose four brave americans and maybe there was something we could have done. leading up to that in which we could have prevented it. it's pretty hard to g
at dinner. the problem that he is going to have, though, frankly, if john kerry were to good over to state department, as appears likely, a lot of folks, particularly within the senate would like to see him run for the senate. they would like to bring him in. it helps with showing sort of the diversity gap between themselves and the gop, which i think harry reid is very eager to demonstrate. and he is really the only person right now in the state that could beat scott brown in a special election. none of the house members really have the name id or the sort of the juice to do it. so he is really the one. >> who else do you think, boyce? who else do you think goes? who comes? >> i think the most interesting one is state, what is going to happen. hillary clinton is obviously out. is it going to be kerry? if it is kerry, you have to look at the state of massachusetts. duval patrick would appoint himself. and there would be an election. to me that's just as important. i thought janet napolitano is someone who is at the top of the list. but she is someone who is considered to be pretty partisan
kerr gee a better choice for secretary of state and if john kerry is, then that could be really good news for scott brown because if john kerry left as senator of massachusetts, there would be a special election. scott brown would most probably be favored. of course, he was beaten by elizabeth warren a couple days ago. >> brian: i have a better idea for him. colin powell. he's obviously a fan, knows his stuff. colin powell is obviously a supporter. it seems to be a good indication of reaching across the aisle. >> steve: maybe. >> brian: 24 minutes before the top of the hour. last night dennis miller did his normal stint on bill o'reilly. he had a different take, speaking from the heart rather than the sense of humor portion of plains. listen. >> the election, i think this is where this country is at right now. i don't know everybody else's political predirection. yesterday some people think this was the best day america ever had. its proudest moment. i don't agree. i know i'm going to be the object of readvantage now, but i'm not going to back off it. i like a country where people bu
presidential candidate, massachusetts senator john kerry, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. another candidate? the president's national security adviser tom donilon, and perhaps a more controversial choice, u.n. ambassador susan rice, the obama administration's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence explanation of the benghazi attacks. still, most insiders believe rice and kerry are the two front-runners. white house veterans say clinton's eventual replacement will be on solid ground. >> the secretary of state in the second administration has the advantage of a president who has their bearings about what they want to accomplish around the world. >> in treasury the top candidate to replace timothy geithner white house chief of staff jack lew who has also served as the budget director. the president may decide to keep him where he is and perhaps look elsewhere to another senator or clinton administration veteran. at the pentagon leon panetta's departure may not occur until the spring but the list may include michele flournoy. she would be the first ever wo
. i think john kerry would be a choice before john mccain. but it would probably be a good idea to reach across the aisle. but you are trying to litigate the election. saying that obama did nothing but obamacare, which is not true. let's move forward and realize. unfortunately -- [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> we have a debt ambassador in libya. [talking over each other] >> is that susan rice's fault? we need to get to the bottom of this. >> you are arguing what we argued a month ago. martha: regardless of what we see here today, there is testimony being given right now. it is honestly a hot issue and remains so. we know that we will hear from general david petraeus in the coming days. there is more to be told and we will get to the bottom of it. we will see whether susan rice continues to stand by as we move forward in the process. bill: 12 minutes away, we have jon scott and jenna lee on "happening now." martha: and we are awaiting a news conference on the attack and benghazi. we we'll have that live for you. also, a special agent who worked on the uss
role. massachusetts senator john kerry was also talked about for secretary of state but now his name is being mentioned as possibility for secretary of defense to replace leon panetta. john brennan, president of homeland security adviser could have the cia job if he wanted it we're told. but if he wants to retire the job is likely to go to general petraeus' number two, michael morell. charlie, norah? >> bill thanks. >>> congress gets back to work with a long list of things to do. there is still talk of a compromise to prevent a budget crisis. jan crawford has been -- steve crawford has been following this. pleased to have you with us this morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> where do you think the compromise with the president stands today? >> i think it's going to happen. substantial compromise maybe not work out all the problems but i think they have to make some real progress between now and the first of the year. >> on the house side that's clear that boehner is send inging a message to fellow republicans on the house, we've got to make extra steps tha
john kerry was also talked about as the possible secretary of state, but white house sources are now talking about him as secretary of defense, replacing leeley. and john brennan is a shoo-in to hed the cia, unless he wants to retire, in which case the job is likely to go to his deputy michael morell. >>> congress gets back to work this morning with a long list of things to do. there is still talk of a compromise to prevent a budget crisis. for months now, steve kroft has been covering the impact of gridlock in congress. his interview with senate leaders harry reid and mitch mcconnell ran just before election day. >> hi, charlie. >> what do you think the possibility of congress compromising with the president stands today? >> i think that it's got to happen. i think substantial compromise, maybe not work out all the problems, maybe put some of them off beyond january 1st, but i think they have to make some real problem between now and the first of the year. >> and on the house side, it's clear that boehner is sending a message to fellow republicans in the house who have got to make e
for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups that they made in november it's not going to be -- on election day it's knots going to be a question of control of the senate one way or the other so they might be willing to give up that seat potentially to scott brown who might come back in another special election. martha: they have a little bit of a cushion now which gives them a little bit of flexibility on john terry as you point out. in terms of the attorney general position, obviously heale obvious obviously eric holder has been through the ringer in the last four years. i don't think anyone would be some surprised to see him step down. any thoughts on who would replace him in he did? >> one of the people who is being mentioned and again we don't know how serious that is is janet napolitano, secretary of homeland security. she really apparently would
with her, whether or not that's over. then the other one, of course, is john kerry of massachusetts. the problem is if you pull kerry down from massachusetts, there is a guy walking around massachusetts right now who would like a senate seat, right? you could totally end up with a situation of him running again? any sense of how the president might negotiate that decision? >> no sense at all. you know, kerry has been widely known to covet this job for a long time. speaking for myself, i always thought he would make a fine secretary of state. in the old-fashioned sense of who would do a good job, this is someone i think who showed us when he was a presidential candidate in the senate, he would be a wonderful secretary of state. but you create this political problem. we've seen how one vote in the senate can make such a difference. it's hard to know how to solve it. >> the speech to the dnc felt like an audition. it looks like holder will probably leave the attorney general position, although i have great imaginings of him running like a voter suppression, voter rights thing. >> looki
is the president is itching for a fight with congress. he's talking about nominating john kerry as secretary of defense and susan rice, a woman who misled the american people about a terrorist attack, as secretary of state. that is the -- those would be the acts of a man who is itching for a fight with the republican congress on foreign policy. megyn: i do want to say this, simon, is -- so he has this liberal think tank called nxn, and at ndn.org if you go to simon rosenberg blogs, you will see simon's full defense of susan rice, and it is an interesting read, and it espouses your position well, because i missouri you've taken a lot of incoming -- [laughter] >> particularly here, megyn. megyn: i recommend people check it out and make up your own minds. >> thanks, megyn. >> thank you. megyn: well, we saw one more dramatic moment on libya yesterday when our own ed henry asked the president what he would say to the families who lost loved ones in this benghazi that day about the lack of answers? here's the president's answer, in part. >> i'll address the families not through the press, i'll add
